Been working on next gen Bismuth wallet all day long, and came up with "Crystals". Think of Crystals as kind of plugins: small code that adds extra features to your wallet in a snap. You'll be able to interact with exchanges, Pools, or dApps (Dragginator anyone?) right from your wallet!
Nik Patel released a coin report on Bismuth, analyzing strength and weaknesses of $BIS. Have a look! www.altcointradershandbook.com/coin-report-bismuth/ BIS got a 7/10 rating.
Early preview: I released the Alpha version of BismuthClient, installs via a simple "pip3 install BismuthClient" This module includes core Bismuth helpers as well as higher level abstractions, like bismuthclient and bismuthwallet. This is a must have for any BIS dev and will ease clients Apps and dApps based on Bismuth a lot. Several projects leveraging this module already are on their way.
Glad to see lots of things going on with $BIS. To give you a sneak peek on what the team worked on the last days: - More tools and features to ease exchanges integration thanks to helpful exchanges devs - Continuous improvements of older tools - Plus at least 3 awesome end user tools begin actively worked on
2 days ago, we were asked for a C# library for native API access. Thanks to our benevolent contributor @LeMoussel , this was done quite fast: github.com/EggPool/BismuthAPI/tree/master/C%23 Awesome work, many thanks to him!
An unexpected edge case forced us to release an emergency BIS Hypernodes auto-upgrade. Check your Hypernode status and head over to the discord for help if needed. hypernodes.bismuth.live/?page_id=163 Hypernodes that were properly installed with the sentinel have been fully auto upgraded and are running fine. Time to recheck your setup if yours did not. Current HN version is 0.0.98c
